A Note From Selena

In my opinion, the best thing about presets is the ability to make them completely your own. When I first started out with the Lightroom program, I was excited but also overwhelmed. After a couple months of messing around I bought cheap presets that I thought would help me edit my photos better. Naturally, I didn’t love the look of them and never used them. They were too moody and desaturated for my taste. Instead, it took me years to perfect the preset collections we now use for our photos.


I wish I had spent the money in the beginning on presets I really loved. It would’ve made me more excited to edit our photos! Having a great starting off point avoids the headache of lots of trial and error. It also allows for flexibility. If you’d rather improve your image drastically with 1 click, these presets are for you. If you want to develop your own editing style but just need somewhere to start, these presets are for you. The possibilities are endless! Just don’t make the mistake I did — I promise, it’s worth it to learn with something that excites you from the beginning.


What are Lightroom Presets?
Lightroom presets are similar to filters, but they allow for way more control over your image because they are fully customizable when applied. Over the past few years of editing photos I’ve developed our own collection of presets by making edits to various photos, saving those edits, and continuously refining them. The result is various presets that we use every day to edit our photos, which are the ones we’re selling here.

What’s the difference between mobile and desktop presets?
Mobile presets are for use on the free Lightroom app for mobile and work with JPEG images like iPhone photos. Desktop presets are for use your computer with the Adobe Lightroom program, which requires a subscription. Desktop presets work with RAW photos and high quality JPEG images. Are mobile and desktop presets are not the same – they have been developed and adapted with each platform in mind.

I’m new to photography, can I still use presets?
Yes! Presets can be used by anyone. It’s up to you if you prefer to edit on your mobile device using mobile presets or a computer using desktop presets. You’ll always have the most control with a desktop computer. Presets work great for travel photos, photos you take with friends and family, for events, to develop your own portfolio…you name it.

When do I get the presets after I purchase them?
You’ll be sent the presets immediately after purchasing, along with our Quick Installation Guide and Editing Cheat Sheet.

How do I know which preset collection is right for me?
While all our collections are designed to work with a wide range of photos, I recommend the Europe Collection (mobile version here) if you tend to take more photos of buildings and nature, and the Greek Islands Collection (mobile version here) if you take more photos of beachy destinations and blue skies, and the India Collection (mobile version here) if you’re looking for warmth and capturing cities and details. Both are designed to enhance landscapes and skin tones. If you want a diverse set of presets to cover all types of photos, I recommend purchasing our Complete Collection (mobile version here), which includes all our presets at a discounted rate.


Mobile Presets FAQs

Do I need to pay to use the Lightroom app on my phone?
Nope! The Lightroom app is free to download and you don’t need a subscription to use it.

Can I edit my iPhone photos on the Lightroom mobile app?
Yes! I edit all my iPhone photos using our presets on the Lightroom mobile app.

Can I edit photos taken with my camera on the Lightroom mobile app?
Yes again. You will just need to get the JPEG files to your phone for editing. I recommend using Airdrop or you can also email them to yourself.


Desktop Presets FAQs

I work with a specific line of photography, will these still work for me?
Yes! Our desktop presets are great for bloggers, travel photographers, portrait photographers, fashion photographers…basically anyone looking for a clean, polished aesthetic.

I don’t shoot RAW, will the desktop presets still work?
Shooting in RAW is recommended as it gives you access to all of the info within the photo and more control when editing. However, our desktop presets will still work for JPEG photos just fine.

Do I need a Lightroom subscription on my computer to use your desktop presets?
Yes, you will need a monthly subscription to Adobe Lightroom. If you don’t want to pay for a subscription, consider purchasing our mobile presets instead for the free Lightroom app.

What file format are the presets in, and will they work with an older version of Lightroom?
Presets are in .xmp format. Adobe Lightroom pushed an update through in April 2018 and switched from .lrtemplate to .xmp file formats. To avoid any compatibility issues, I highly recommend using the latest version of Lightroom if you aren’t already! I edit in Lightroom Classic CC using the latest version.

    I've recently realized how time consuming photo editing can be for a Lightroom beginner. Thanks to this preset collection, I've been able to quickly upgrade my editing quality! This has really helped me capture my aesthetic. It's even developing my photography and challenging the way I look at colors to increase my creativity. I highly recommend this collection, it's worth the investment for high quality results!

    I am an avid user of Selena's presets! I've purchased many preset collections in the past and been disappointed but this was not the case with Selena's Europe + Greek Island presets. I use them often when editing travel photos and they give just the right balance between colour adjustments and desaturation, without overdoing it. My favourites are Austria and Lisbon. After using these ones I also purchased the India presets and are just as happy with those.

    I purchased these presets recently and I absolutely LOVE the subtle upgrade they make to all of my photos! There is a decent variety of options for each collection and it's fun to adjust the colors, etc. I think the Master Collection is worth investing in! And a wonderful place to start if you are new to presets. I want to purchase allllll of the presets from @finduslost now!

    Love these presets! I've been looking for presets for FOREVER that are softer toned, but still allow for the image's true color to shine through. Most presets over/undersaturate and these are perfect!!

    I’ve finally started to get back into photography with a DSLR camera & these have been great to use on my photos. Using these have also forced me to learn even more about editing my photos. Attached are a before & after using only a preset on a photo from a foggy & lowlight day

    I first stumbled upon Selena and Jacob's website after moving to the UK and starting to travel. I fell in love with the look of their travel photos! I haven't used presets much, but it seems they will cut down on the time spent processing. I can't wait to give the Master Collection presets a go with my own travel photos.

    I purchased the Master Collection and I absolutely LOVE them, they are such a game changer in the look and feel of my photos!! If you are wanting to take your photos to the next level, these are for you! I cannot say enough about how beautiful these are, totally worth every penny!!

    ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE! I was tempted to buy these presets for such a long time after falling in love with the look of Selena and Jacob’s @finduslost Instagram page. I just couldn’t get my photos looking right and I’d hoped that maybe these presets would be my answer. I couldn’t decide between the two bundles as I loved the look of them both, so I dived right in and got the ‘master collection’. Within hours of setting them up and having a play, I was in love! They are really beautiful, easy to use and of the 16 presets, I can always find one that makes my photos look incredible! They drastically reduce my editing time and I’m so happy with the way my photos now look! I can absolutely say these presets are money well spent!!

    I just bought the presets and I love them! They are the perfect mix for the look I am going for on my instagram. I can't wait to keep playing around with them. Compared to other presets being sold online, they are extremely budget friendly, and well worth it!

    I purchased the Master Collection and am in love with these. I have used several lightroom presets over the past few years and I can truly say these will be a new “go to” for me. They are such good quality and they are super simple to tweak for each individual photo if needed. The colors are beautiful and they are super affordable for the amount of presets you get in the package. If you are on the fence I would say you definitely won’t regret purchasing these!
